Bombardier to showcase Global 7000 business jet in Dubai
January 4, 2018: Bombardier along with Dubai's Jetex Private Terminal will be hosting a mockup of the Global 7000 aircraft between January 8 and 31.
According to reports, the full-size mock-up will make its debut in the Middle East to showcase the aircraft's unparalleled spaciousness, luxury, and comfort, as well as its high-end, fully equipped kitchen.
'We are proud to collaborate with Jetex to showcase the industry's most innovative business jet. The Global 7000 aircraft offers no compromise in terms of range, cabin space and comfort, and it will set the standard for a new category of business jets,' said Khader Mattar, vice president, sales, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific & China of Bombardier Business Aircraft.
'The Middle East represents a huge growth opportunity for aircraft manufacturing; we are excited that the mock-up will be on display in Dubai so that customers can discover why the Global 7000 aircraft offers the smoothest ride and is the perfect home away from home,' said Mattar.
First unveiled in Geneva at the 2014 European business aviation conference and exhibition (EBACE), the 32-meter long mock-up is a full-scale reproduction of the Global 7000 aircraft. This exclusive visit to the UAE marks the mock-up's maiden voyage to the Middle East.
Jetex will celebrate its arrival with a lavish cocktail event held in the convivial surroundings of its flagship Dubai South facility on January 17. The Global 7000 aircraft mock-up is expected to remain at the terminal for just under a month, offering guests a rare opportunity to arrange an appointment for a special private viewing.
Jetex CEO & president Adel Mardini said: "Jetex is delighted to collaborate with Bombardier to offer our guests an exclusive opportunity to step on board the stunning Global 7000 aircraft. We believe the synergies in our businesses make the Jetex FBO terminal in Dubai an ideal venue for the regional debut of this incredible triumph of engineering. Our facility is among the largest of its kind worldwide, and delivers unprecedented levels of luxury, comfort and dependability to the same clientele who will ultimately own this wonderful aircraft."
Guests will be able to explore the full length of the cabin, from the cockpit's cutting-edge technology and the full-size kitchen to the spacious bedroom and the luggage bay at the rear. This rare opportunity will allow guests to discover what will place the Global 7000 aircraft at the pinnacle of the large business jet market.
The Global 7000 aircraft will be the first and only aircraft in its class to offer four living spaces and a dedicated full-sized crew suite, and its meticulously crafted interior will incorporate bespoke living areas where passengers can work, dine, sleep and relax in unparalleled luxury and comfort. The Global 7000 mock-up features a dining area, entertainment lounge, en-suite master bedroom and private washroom.
The fully equipped kitchen features a large cooking surface and high-end appliances, as well as ample room for dinnerware and glassware, offering a sense of home comfort. The interior of the aircraft will be highly customizable and owners seeking to create the ultimate in-flight experience will be able to configure the interior to reflect their personal tastes.
The Global 7000 aircraft, the world's largest purpose-built business jet, has a top speed of Mach 0.925 and a remarkable 7,400 nautical mile range, allowing it to connect the world's most expansive city pairings while delivering the ultimate smooth ride.
